When was the last time you went wahoo?

Alternate title: Holy Mackerel!!
We're back from Aruba. SO. MUCH. FUN. We told Joe's parents to just go ahead and section off the timeshare in their will to go to us. We have found our second home. So, here's what the post title is all about:

Joe is so proud of it! It is a wahoo, which we are told is some kind of mackerel, but it tasted way better than mackerel. I caught a few small tuna, so we had the wahoo one night and the tuna the next. We only took a small chunk of the wahoo, but cracked up when we saw that the special that day at a local restaurant was fried wahoo salad. Here's the tuna at Chez Jenny:

I never realized how much of a difference fresh caught fish makes. It tastes a zillion times better than anything I ever got from a fish market.

Anyway! We sat by the pool a lot, shopped a lot, ate a LOT, drank a lot, and had the best time ever. We both agreed it was better than our honeymoon, which is really saying something. As promised, here is my dress, modeled:

I thought my plane knitting was pretty funny, so I thought I would share...
This is how much plane knitting you can do when you are all jazzed up about your impending vacation:

And, this is how much plane knitting you can do when you are so tired from said vacation that you could pass out at any second:

Well, I better go get started on my 354 unread blogs on bloglines. Forgive me if I don't comment! I'm tired!

I'm glad you both had such a great time. Especially while the rest of us were freezing over here. ;)

Your dress came out great! And that is a BIG fish!

Wow - that vacation sounds wonderful. Fresh fish is absolutely wonderful. I love the dress, and the knitting is too funny! How many naps did you take in between rows on the way-home sock??

Yay for your safe return. The plane knitting thing is funny.

Glad to hear you had such a fantastic time!! And the dress looks amazing on you too! Hee hee, I had the same experience with my sock knitting when I went to Vegas in September. A half-finished sock one way and not much to show for the other way :) Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
